How to check if an integer value has been entered to a custom field?

DaveF May 25, 2016

I need to check if the value of a custom numeric field has an integer value in a workflow validator.


  • cfvalues['Hours Saved / Month (Monthly Tasks)'].value.isInteger()
  •  cfvalues['Hours Saved / Month (Monthly Tasks)'].toString().isInteger()
  • cfvalues['Hours Saved / Month (Monthly Tasks)'].value.toString().isInteger()

Assuming Hours Saved / Month (Monthly Tasks) is a normal text field the second one should return

if (cfvalues['Hours Saved / Month (Monthly Tasks)']?.isInteger()) {

should work. If it doesn't, how doesn't it?

Amazing response as always Jamie! Might walk up to Old Street and buy you a beer or three.

Still not working. The field is numeric so I've tried  check it both ways, just the test then with toString.

if (cfvalues['Hours Saved / Month (Monthly Tasks)']?.toString().isInteger()) {
    return true

Part of frustration is that I don't have access to the log files so debugging isn't as easy as it could be.

Just created a text custom field, same result, every combination fails.

if (cfvalues['Hours Saved / Ad Hoc']?.isInteger()) {
    return true
